Betfair have announced a delay in the cuttoff to api-6. The initial date was 2nd Nov 2014. The new date is 10th Nov.
This gives a little more time for us to fix the new API-NG version but due to some difficult technical issues we are likely to be delayed in introducing the new software by a few weeks.
Please note all current software versions will stop working on Nov 10th 2014.
We will keep you updated as developments happen and apologise for any interruptions to your software.
The BBP Team
Dear Software Vendor,
Further to our earlier announcements and owing to a requirement from Betfair Australia, the retirement of API 5.0 & 6.0 has been delayed and this will now take place on Monday 10th November 2014 (GMT timezone).
Sunday 9th November 2014 will be the final day of full service on API 5.0 & 6.0
We strongly recommend that no attempts are made to access API 5.0 & 6.0 on the 10th November.
To ensure a smooth transition, we request that all vendors complete the migration of at least 50% of their total customer base by the 2nd November
We would like to thank all software vendors for their patience & support during the migration period.
Please let us know if you have any questions regarding the above.
